, the economy was about to bust out and washington snuffed it. we had it in hand, we had to turn housing with home builders, and we had to turn to booming order from boeing. and banks were getting their balance, and oil and gas industry started booming and opportunities for new petrochemicals hiring tens of thousands of people strongest in years. people, it was all come together. and now washington's crushing it. best of all, people are starting to get hired again. all those industries are just mentioned were growing, all of them looked like a real good year to expand. business people are in retreat, and their leaders, many of whom speak to me, are done hiring. and they want to fire, cutback, so she saw the chaos from capital coming and did the right thing for shareholders, when the right thing not that long ago was to hire, not fire. washington with its sickening inability to compromise wrecked it, wrecked it all and took what was developing into a beautiful bull market, by real profits, real hiring and turned it on its head, maybe turned it into a bear market. makes me nauseous just th
the world through the lens of compromise. today we saw what the stock market looks like if washington rises above politics! ♪ hallelujah [ applause ] any time you try to analyze winners, you have to eliminate the stocks that move because of other events. oil and gas stocks had gigantic moves because of the turmoil in the middle east. so many companies can benefit from the increase in the worldwide price of oil. second, we're seeing the china plays move up. it's become quite obvious. that's how copper stock like freeport or hefry machinery can rally. those aren't fiscal cliff stories. what are? what are fiscal cliff stories? how about the home improvement place? we can sit here and say that lowe's rallied today because of reported better than expected quarter this morning. you can argue that hurricane sandy to augment earnings for the next year as we're beginning to rebuild the coast. many of the hardest hit areas aren't even accessible to contractors let alone homeowners. however, i think that retail is the biggest winner if we hammer out a phased in group of spending cuts and tax increas
to waste by the big issues in washington? >> today the dow closing down 59 points and the nasdaq declining. isn't it logical to ask why we have not been clubbed into bearish submission considering the radical changes and spending cuts that can stop any economy in it's tracks. [ sound of train ] >> i mind why we aren't pummeled instead of being unchanged like yesterday is because there are factors that need to be flushed out on this show. ones that may explain why things aren't going the intuitive way. the market is hopeful a deal can be reached. i find this hope somewhat incredible given the terrible track record of congress and the president. and the huge goal between the parts. after all, if you are president obama, you believe the election is over and your campaign received a ringing endorsement. but if you are a republican, you have to believe that those republicans that do not want to rise above politics are banking on massive declines in spending to wreck the economy. if you are a republican, in permanent campaign mode, i'm sure one of your advisers is saying that going off
talk for a bunch of people in washington about how compromise was within reach. however, i think it's been increasingly apparent that we actually may not get a deal in time of the january deadline, something warren buffett pointed out. you don't need to change your philosophy just because we cliffed you. long term it might not matter. not all of you share his sangwin multi-year view of stocks. he can afford to take the long view. if we take the plunge over the cliff, it can cost everyone $2 million, makes everyone pay more in taxes. i don't really want to have this gear. the president said today he thought a deal could be done by christmas. the speaker of the house said he's optimistic a compromise could be reached. i wear this pin every night in in part because i genuinely believe it is not a lost cause. tonight business leaders in washington are urging a deal. people who are not really known as pals of the president. the president also bringing his pressure to bear on small regular people, regular folks. i'm old enough to remember when it meant my parents. he's turned to twitter t
get evidence of what could happen if washington would just get off our backs! sell, sell, sell. >> the house of pain! >> sure that evidence is often obscured by the averages like today where they meandered all session. dow closing flat. nasdaq down slightly. but that doesn't stop us from looking for ideas on "mad money." yes, we have an entirely man made crisis. one that could not only cause a huge firings and curtail retail spending dramatically, but it's also driving people out of a stock market where individual companies are giving you positives that would normally provide a tremendous backdrop to a higher market. you know there was a time when some good news over multiple sectors would produce a bountiful bull. yes, good enough things occurred with individual companies that the sum total would produce overall gains in many stocks. we used to call this pin action. now we get nothing. no spillover. the 1 pin gets knocked down. and nothing else falls with it. let me just go over some of the good news, some of the nabbing down 1 pins just today that are being obscured by this d
is that time's not on the side of the compromisers anymore. there's just too much going on in washington to presume that even like-minded people can wrest the debate from the partisan extremists of either party, those who sink below and not rise above. even if you're confident that a deal can be reached someday, you had to have your breath taken away by the first question from the press after the president gave an impassioned statement about the need to avert the cliff that's going to raise everybody's taxes and just cause such havoc. that's because the question was about general petraeus. not the financial time bomb facing us. oh, no. petraeus -- petraeus? don't you know this is bigger than petraeus? we're sunk if you don't. between the distraction of the petraeus affair and the slew of hollies ahead you've got to start wondering if we might plunge from the cliff because of the sheer lack of days before what everyone's beginning to recognize as the potential for a financial armageddon. before i get to what could work eventually, eventually, the emphasis is on eventually in this ticktock
, they weren't alone. finally there's washington. we headed into the weekend with lots of talk. lots of talk about good feelings. good feelings over possible deal to avert the fiscal cliff. republicans seem to be breaking ranks with the hardliners. talk about maybe raising revenues if the democrats will be willing to do meaningful entitlement reform. that positive tone, the rising above, helped move up the futures right into the bell. who wanted to be short ahead of a weekend deal? what a difference a day makes. this morning we come in, what are they chattering about? greece. greece. can you believe greece? it's standing in the way of a european deal again. this small country with no grip on its finances has europe hostage all over again. without a deal, everything in europe came down last night. we didn't get a sunday night easing from china. worried that the recent positive data can't be maintained without more interest rate cuts. you know what, we've been conditioned to believe weaker economic data means more stimulus, which leads to higher stock prices here. what happens if the news isn'
of washington, apple, google and amazon. just today gaining at the close of the market. look, i'm as aggravated as you are about the lack of progress over the fiscal cliff. is there progress? is there no progress? are the democrats giving? have the democrats given? the only thing given that i know is the tablet. that's what i want to spend a moment on while we bemoan the farce that is washington. one of the worst aspects of this era where we have to hang on every word of people who frankly aren't actually trying to make us any money, and if anything want to take it from us, is there are companies doing amazing things, so tonight in the interests of some companies that are doing great things that can make you money, i want to celebrate the products of three terrific companies as well as their stocks, because after all this is "mad money," not mad tablets. first one of my favorites is the column that amazes me, david pope, the "new york times" writer who opines brilliantly in a can't-miss column about tech products. i love this guy. today's product starts well enough, a segment of an npr-call-in
's washington's role from here? for the most part, when i look at individual companies, i see stocks doing better where management excelled, and stocks doing worst where management failed to execute. that's right. from my little vantage point, stock performance had almost nothing to do with who occupies the white house. sorry, i know it's a buzz kill, but i got to go with the empirical data. first, many stocks are simply unchanged during this five-year period. of course after a big dip. but let's talk about what really moves stocks. and it sure isn't 1600 pennsylvania avenue. allow me to illustrate. let's consider two stocks in the same sector, hewlitt packard and ibm. both companies decided to de-emphasize hardware and move more aggressively toward big data management, software, and consulting. five years ago, ibm was at $111. now it's at $194, 75% gain. five years ago, it was at $49. now it's at $14. the political determinist out there would say that business will do better under romney. i'd say that business did better under the former ibm than the various ceos at hewlitt packard. don't
lead in the state of oregon. and washington state. nbc news projects that barack obama will take the state of washington. there are some cheers in democracy plaza. we'll go back to there as the map fills in as the night goes on. >> not really clear who the fan base is for because you're hearing the same kind of, you know, phrase for both obama and romney. >> puts the president at 243 which is less than 30 points needed to get to 270. things are getting important here. in the meantime, your headlines at this hour. nbc news projecting obama ahead in electoral votes after sweeping up california as we mentioned. wisconsin, new hampshire. the first of the battleground state also fall to obama. however, we're still waiting on the other key swing states, iowa and nevada remain too early to call. north carolina, ohio, virginia, florida, colorado, too close to call. the senate, mostly breaking as expe expected, but the democrats did pick up three new seats. republicans projected to hold the house as well. >> all right. let's get straight to john harwood at the maproom to give us more colo
the washington redskins. let's go to kevin in connecticut. >> wendy's? >> everything is being colored by mcdonald's which is not doing that well. it has had a nice run. jeff in montana. >> good booyah from montana. my question is, we have a stock you recommended, dvax. >> trouble trouble. you know i got to tell you something. classic overreaction. it is not right, i don't want you to sell it here. i don't think that they can get that trial ready by february though. let's go to mark in ohio. >> hello, jim. booyah from cincinnati. >> bengals look good. thank you for aj green. >> i have a question about cdi. i'm big on natural gas. >> i think it is okay. so, you know what? go to some that aren't doing as well. let's go to don in california. >> my stock is fsys. >> yeah, you know that has not been that -- you know, no. ring the register. i don't like the prospects there. and that was the special fantasy football lightning round. >> coming up. ready to reverse? the charts have not been kind to many foreign financials. but cramer had found a pattern signaling a turnaround as jim goes off the char
from beautiful bainbridge island, washington. >> i wish i was there. >>> let's go right to it. >> caller: jay from beautiful bainbridge island, washington. >> i wish i was there. >> caller: it's rainy. >> john in florida. >> boo-yah, jimmy from the beach in miami. >> everyone is in a better place than i am. >> caller: boo-yah from miami. >> i wish i were there so bad. can't you transport me there right now? >> this week in the fiscal cliff. >> it's because of the fiscal cliff. >> going off the fiscal cliff. >> fiscal cliff. >> looming cliff. looming cliff, one of my favorites. >> you've been watching this week in the fiscal cliff. >> it's a surprise. that's why we are throwing our surprise party tonight. have i overdone this yet? fiscal cliff. we're having a birthday cake, surprise cake. it's one of those that has ice cream. cvs barely budged the day it reported. almost like someone took a knife and stuck it into the outside surprise party. talk about a party pooper. what are these titanium balloons? inappropriate balloon moment there. scuba diving the great barrier reef with
a new cast of characters in washington would be coming in. typically a republican in the white house that gives you the hope of anything drastic could be reached. now we're back to the same antagonists who couldn't agree last time. so i have another comeback. my pro. simple. why shouldn't we think something can be worked out and the politicians can rise above this partisan warfare? the intransigence of the republicans arguably cost them the white house. and a bunch of what should have been certain senate seats. something that should have been a given, given the lousy unemployment numbers. they have to realize it's electoral suicide to stick by the promise to never raise taxes for the ultra rich. if they do so, they run the risk of being voted out of congress. that's the take away of tuesday night. it's a pretty powerful incentive that could bring about a resolution that doesn't dramatically raise taxes on stocks. and that might tip people back into the market. as they realize that rising dividends from cash rich companies are far more bountiful than any return that bonds can possibly
? >> caller: washington redskins boo-yah rg3 nation stand up. >> man. dan snyder is your owner, have you thought about that at all? >> caller: i got a quick question. >> boo! >> when stay on the sidelines or look to get in long-term? >> when it's overbought, my old rule, i use the s&p oscillator. it comes delivered to my door on saturdays. my rule is very overbought, hey, take a pass. another time will come. however, you can get started small and hope it comes back if you just can't resist. sam in ohio, sam? >> caller: hey, jim, big glass city boo-yah to ya. >> love it. what's up? >> caller: i have a question. i've been looking at a couple of utility stocks, and looking at either going with preferred instead of the common shares. i just wanted to get your opinion on maybe what might be better -- >> nah, come on, we want upside. we want upside. we don't want to cap our upside. you know what? let's just own them outright. we'll do just fine. of course i want you in this market for the long run. the whole idea of trading back, you can't beat the high frequency traders. give me a break. i wa
